This a little people art nude bodyscape shot with Sylph was entertaining to create. At first glance it just looks like a crop harvester on hilly farm terrain. But no actually it’s harvesting something much diffident haha. Bodyscape are photographs of the nude human form that are shot in such a way that a first glance the photo appears to be a photo of a black and white landscape. This bodyscape makes the nude human form fun. In prep for this shoot I bought a ton of little miniature people figurines and vehicles, luckily this toy harvester was one of them. There was a lot of laughter in my Brisbane studio during this shoot haha.
I love these types of over the top bodyscapes because I’m able to add a little bit of light-hearted humour into the image. This bodyscape never fails to get a fun reaction from anyone that sees it. It may take a few minutes till they get it but when they do expect to hear laughter.
I lit this scene from behind with my Bowens Gemini 500R studio lights with a 35x140cm strip box softbox. Lighting is the most important detail to get right when shooting bodyscapes. Bad lighting can very easily ruin the illusion. The key to a good bodyscape photo is even when it becomes clear it is a photo of the human body the first reality should remain
